No, clearly he should be given a permanent brand on his forehead and forced to sit on the Diag with a sign reading "I Did Not Support the Troops"
|6 weeks 6 days ago||If nothing else RR's teams||
If nothing else RR's teams were fun to watch. More and more often watching Hoke's Michigan is like taking a really difficult shit. You struggle through, wash your hands and are relieved when it's over.

I like Nik but you think he's gonna find 8 more points in 6 minutes or so? Or are you expecting them to run him for 38+ a game?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||No||
Not even a blip. Slight satisfaction/relief if anything, since it makes Hoke and Brandon's departures more likely. Apparently the players feel the same way, given Funchess' comments.

Just slap a picture of darth vader on it and call it a day!

There's a thread like this every season.
You're kidding yourself if you think this will be fun for you or the infant (or you have a very unique definition of fun).

So if a 'body-bag' actually beats UM, they should never be rescheduled? Doesn't that look like cowardice?

I wonder if they're vestigial or actually contribute something. Does he have a particularly strong grip? I'm expecting Adam to get on this at the pressers ASAP.

Turns your phone into a scanner. Can 'enhance' shots to B&W only to make them more legible.

My god, Irvin's waist is at the rim! And he's 9 feet tall!

Ukrainian fighter and cargo planes have been shot down in recent days. I haven't seen any mention of how big the cargo plane was or how high they were flying when hit.
edit - another link from BBC in case the WSJ paywalls you (it let me in from google, but not from mgoblog..)

Turner Field (where the Braves play) is even newer. That didn't stop them from trying to hold taxpayers hostage for a new park, and then moving to Marietta (suburb). I bet they wish they'd started a year earlier - the Falcons beat them to it.
If you're suprised to see pro sports teams wasting public funding on unneccessary new arenas, you haven't been paying attention.

Yes please. Smith could be a good piece of the right team, but I don't see the Pistons fitting that mold any time soon.

"Subpar Defense". Probably to negative-recruit a big man. No one wants to get posterized because their teammate was slacking on D.

I always thought 'wings' referred to the entire yellow portion of the helmet.

The Noel/Davis gifs of them surrounded by 5'3 clones are great.

|31 weeks 4 days ago||Like the other commenters||
Like the other commenters here, all I have is my own memory of 'Lewan has gotten a number of personals', or articles mentioning a single foul in a random game.
It would be interesting to see the actual count - it would be cool to see comprehensive NCAA penalty stats for their own sake, too.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||The helmet twist is pretty||
The helmet twist is pretty egregious. People were ready to crucify Gholston when he did that to His Holiness Denard, and rightfully so.
I've been trying and failing to find a count of unsportsmanlikes called on Lewan. He was no stranger to the personal foul.
Hoke here suggesting the leadership last year was suspect, specfically saying this year they aren't just going to 'annoint certain players'. That's not Lewan-specific, but he'd be in the group.
He's facing assault charges (LINK).
He was accused of intimidating Gibbons' alleged rape victim.
The immediate reaction to most of these has been to defend our guy against perceived witch hunts. "The damn buckeye was smirking when he talked to the cops! That Watchdog guy is insane, he's got a grudge!"
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Wasn't Incognito on the||
Wasn't Incognito on the Dolphin's 'Leadership Council' or whatever? (edit: yes, LINK)
Being in a position of authority/recognized by peers obviously isn't all you need to know about someone's character. Actions speak louder than words, and we've seen plenty from Lewan.

|33 weeks 3 days ago||Why do hockey players quit||
Why do hockey players quit wearing cages in the pros? Going further afield, why do so many motorcyclists not wear helmets? Having a helemt on is uncomfortable and there are social norms around what is an appropriate risk, what looks silly, what makes you look like a 'scaredy cat' and what is different, period.
I'm skeptical your son has 'never been teased' - you're around him 24/7? Kids get teased about anything and everything, something unusual will get targetted eventually.
Not to say I don't agree with you. I hope your son keeps his helmet on and leads a baseball revolution.

Look at the number of professional atheletes busted for weed every year - obviously, smoking weed didn't and doesn't stop them from getting contracts.
